Last years Download Festival was probably the best one we’d ever had at Roadrunner UK– we had a record 14 bands on the bill, including SLIPKNOT as headliners, and whilst it meant hooking up well over 200 interviews over the weekend, a lot of video footage being captured and edited and very little time for eating, it did mean a lot of good times with good friends and watching some great bands.
One big difference last year was that as well as grabbing time for interviews with our bands for the site, we could share the happenings of the day from backstage with all of you, as they happened, as for the first time we were tweeting updates and pictures will all the gossip and we plan on doing the same this year too!
Backstage correspondents Sami (Head of Online PR & Street Promo) and Kirsten (Publicist) will be tweeting from backstage as they rally the bands for interviews, getting all the gossip, pics of your fave RR bands and also tweeting any stage time, signing, meet and greet changes and the like. Andy Pritchard (Head of Creative) will be out front watching the bands- Roadrunner and none Roadrunner- and sinking some beers, giving opinions on the performances, crowd gossip and tweeting pics of the best of the fans each day!
Whichever way you look at it, @Roadrunner_UK is THE Twitter feed to follow at Download this year!
